Kathy Haggstrom,
The Fall edition of the SIGNA Journal had an article about I
hookeri which you should find interesting. I would join up and see
if they will send you this one.
I agree with Claire that seeds are winter fun for us northerners.
You might see if you can get some I versicolor seeds and I
missouriensis ones. These are both very cold tolerant and might
serve as hybrid parents with your I setosa. I vers. is a hybrid of
I setosa and I virgeinica var schrevei anyway. I suspect the
original I setosa was I hookeri. If anyone has more information
about this it would be great to hear from you.
